Monitoring Sustainability

At a glance


Embracing Sustainability is an overarching goal in ZHAW’s strategic leadership, research and education. We contribute to this goal by:

  1. building a richly annotated text corpus on Swiss sustainability discourse (defined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals),
  2. giving access to the corpus for all ZHAW members and the public, and
